doubt about humidity.

Asked by vk1994 | 9th Jul, 2008, 10:22: PM

Expert Answer:

The human body sheds heat by a combination of evaporation of perspiration, heat convection in the surrounding air, and thermal radiation. Under conditions of high humidity, the evaporation of sweat from the skin is decreased and the body's efforts to maintain an acceptable body temperature may be significantly impaired,thus making us feel very uncomfortable.
